Mens Health Longevity Health Check
While men are often seen as physically strong, their health can be a different story. Men are more likely to face health issues earlier in life compared to women. They’re at a higher risk of conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and depression. Surprisingly, men tend to ignore symptoms and avoid seeing a doctor, which can affect their overall well-being.
Heart disease is a significant concern, hitting men about ten years earlier than women, on average. Men also have unique health problems like prostate issues. In India, where diabetes and hypertension are on the rise, men are dealing with sexual health problems, which can sometimes signal early heart issues. Additionally, male infertility is becoming more common, affecting the male-to-female ratio.
It’s essential for men to pay attention to their health, seek medical advice, and address these issues early on to lead longer, healthier lives.
Comprehensive Mens Health Risk Assessment of
This initiative is a pioneering and distinctive concept in India, aiming to screen men with diabetes, hypertension, and elevated cholesterol levels (dyslipidemia) for early indicators of heart attack, stroke, cancer, and bone health risks. The goal is to identify these risks at least 1.5 to 2 years in advance, allowing for the planning of strategies to reduce the risk of developing diseases. In assessing the risk of a heart attack, we can detect early signs of endothelial dysfunction well before any changes appear in ECG or echocardiogram results.
Checking the thickness of the common carotid artery wall (CIMT) is an early way to see if someone might be at risk of a stroke. Once we identify it, we can work together to make changes that can help lower this risk. Our goal is to assist in assessing and addressing this marker, providing the support and information needed to prevent strokes.
Men face higher rates of cancer incidence and mortality compared to women. However, you can take steps to reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer. It’s important to note that the development of most cancers is a gradual process that takes years. Various factors can influence your likelihood of getting cancer. Making informed choices and adopting a healthy lifestyle can significantly lower your chances of developing cancer.
Having lower bone density and strength is a significant risk factor for fractures in both men and women, a risk that tends to increase with age. As part of our initiative, we also provide assessments to evaluate bone density and strength, aiming to identify and address potential concerns, particularly in the context of fracture risk.
It’s estimated that as men reach their 40s, there’s about a 40% chance of experiencing some form of erectile dysfunction (ED), and this likelihood increases by approximately 10% per decade thereafter. These findings suggest that the processes related to aging, which contribute to ED, may commence early in life. Our initiative includes assessments to identify and address ED, providing support and information to manage this condition effectively.
Health Tips & Info
Early assessment allows us to detect potential health risks such as heart issues, stroke, cancer, and bone health concerns well in advance. This proactive approach enables us to plan strategies for risk reduction and promote longer, healthier lives.
We identify early signs of endothelial dysfunction, a precursor to heart issues, much before changes appear in ECG or echocardiogram results. This early detection helps in implementing preventive measures and lifestyle changes to lower the risk of a heart attack.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle, making informed choices, and going for regular screenings can significantly lower the chances of developing certain types of cancer. Early detection and preventive measures play a crucial role in managing cancer risks.
Lower bone density and strength increase the risk of fractures, especially as we age. Our initiative includes assessments to evaluate bone density and strength, aiming to identify and address potential concerns related to fracture risk.
Lifestyle modifications, regular exercise, a healthy diet, and timely health check-ups are essential for reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Early intervention is key to preventing these conditions.
